PREVIEW | Morecambe v Port Vale

13 January 2020

The Shrimps face John Askey's Port Vale at the Globe Arena on Tuesday night as Derek Adams looks to lift his side further from the relegation zone after climbing above Stevenage with the point earned against Colchester United on Saturday.

The Valiants played their part in Morecambe's rise in league position, as Tom Pope's 88th-minute penalty was enough to take all three points against Stevenage on Saturday afternoon.

The result saw Vale's unbeaten run in the league extend to six matches, bouncing back from consecutive defeats in the FA Cup and the Leasing.com Trophy.

Derek Adams will be hoping his side carry their encouraging performance from Saturday into Tuesday's game, the Shrimps boss said: "Port Vale have had a busy week, they had an FA Cup tie against Manchester City last Saturday, they played Salford in the Leasing.com Trophy midweek and will come to the Globe Arena off the back of a good win against Stevenage this Saturday.

"We're coming into the game after a good performance ourselves. We feel that with the chances we created against Colchester we should have won the match but we're looking forward to the Port Vale game because it gives us another opportunity to play at home."

MORECAMBE 2-1 PORT VALE

14 January 2020

THE Shrimps picked up a vital three points as they sealed their fifth win of the season with a 2-1 win over Port vale.

Two early goals gave Derek Adams’s side the perfect platform and despite a late Port Vale response they held on for a welcome win.

Adams made one change from the side that drew with Colchester United on Saturday with George Tanner replacing Luke Conlan at left-back.

And the Shrimps made the perfect start with the opening goal on six minutes. Adam Phillips swung in a left-wing corner which was met by Steven Old whose header beat Scott Brown after a deflection off Luke Joyce.

Six minutes later it was 2-0. Ryan Cooney played in Phillips down the right-hand side and his low cross was met by the unmarked Cole Stockton who made no mistake from close range.

With the wind behind them, the Shrimps tried their luck from distance with Stockton and Ryan Coney both firing off target.

The Shrimps were forced into a change at half time with Phillips replaced by John O’Sullivan and they started the half on the front foot.

George Tanner’s curling shot was scooped behind by Brown for a corner and the Valiants’ keeper had to react sharply from the resulting corner to tip away a Carlos Mendes-Gomes shot.

It was an hour until Port Vale had an effort of any note as Mark Halstead saved easily from David Amoo’s header.

But form there Port Vale stepped up the pace with former Shrimps’ loanee Richie Bennett linking up well with fellow sub, Mark Cullen.

Bennett flashed a sweetly struck shot over before the visitors grabbed a goal back on 71 minutes James Gibbons curled an excellent shot over Halstead to give the visitors hope.

Halstead made a superb save to keep the lead intact from Amoo’s close range header before the same Port Vale player slashed a late effort horribly wide before a welcome final whistle.
